“I have been playing sports all my life. I played football when I was younger and I still try to play a lot of basketball. But my knee recently started to hurt quite a bit. The pain just hasn’t stopped.
It’s been getting more and more difficult to walk around, so I finally saw my doctor. After some X-rays, he told me that my knee was shot. Arthritis had taken over and a knee replacement surgery was in my future.
I started to watch videos about knee replacements. They look rather painful. The whole knee is removed. All the tendons and ligaments have to come out, too. The artificial knee is literally hammered into place. Then, get this, the knee only lasts for a few years. I’m told they last 10 years at best. This requires a whole new replacement.
I’m glad I caught an interview with Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum. The doctor has received his education in hip, knee and joint replacement surgeries at the Rothman Institute. He’s also been innovating new ways to make joint repair less painful, and he even narrated an instructional video for doctors performing surgeries.
Anyways, Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum is saying that 70 percent of those who think they need a knee replacement could simply get a knee resurfacing. There are a few requirements. First, arthritis can’t be too advanced. Second, only one of the three knee capsules can be affected. Third, you can’t be suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.
The doctor explains that the arthritic capsule is shaved and resurfaced with metal and plastic. You get to keep all of your own ligaments, nerves and tendons, too. I’m definitely going to seek out this surgery. Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum now practices in White Plains, New York, just north of the New York City area.”

Matt Badiali is a Chief Natural Resource Investment Advisor. An alma mater of Penn State University to which is attributed to his expertise in natural resource where he pursued a bachelor’s degree in science, this is before joining Florida Atlantic University for his Master’s in Geology. While working towards a Doctorate in Philosophy he was introduced to the finance world by a friend. Matt Badiali now offers advice to investors whom have leaped bounds in their investments. In his believe there will be a major change in energy consumption due to depletion of non-renewable power sources. Our main drawback being lack of a strong battery technology that could contain enough electricity supply for a city then a shift to the new technology would be made. Significant returns are now possible through investing in natural resources since they are cyclical with a high degree of speculation.
Matt Badiali pens down articles in Banyan Hill Publishing with one are ‘How to Invest in the Cannabis Industry Wisely’. He elaborates on how established brands in the sin industry mostly beverage makers have found the next big thing. They are jumping into marijuana to rejuvenate the industry. It may not come as a shock since there have been a decline in sales numbers in beers and sodas. They hope to remedy this by selling cannabis spikes beers and wines. Assimilated cannabis is approximated to be worth over twenty billion dollars each year.
In another opinion piece he states that platinum is ready for a huge bounce. Platinum is used to make jewelry and diesel fuel. It is currently cheap and is in low supply which makes no sense. Trade wars between China and US currently experiences are only dampening the situation. If China’s demand goes lower the prices of other metal also go down. When the fears of trade wars die then we expect the underlying to spring back. Expect the prices to rocket once the platinum value start to rise.
Matt Badiali may just be right since the prices of oil are on a high. In his article high prices are coming back he says on a lighter note that he is hedging the risk of fuel costs by owning oil companies.
The media has been talking a whole lot about what they are calling “Freedom Checks,” for some time now. The man who brought them to the media’s attention is Matt Badiali, and he knows exactly what they have to offer to investors who are interested. While many people have misunderstood what “Freedom Checks” are, they are actually pretty straightforward. Instead of being part of some kind of get-rich-quick scam, they are part of a program that the government implemented many years ago.
Matt Badiali has revealed that “Freedom Checks” are actually Master Limited Partnerships; otherwise known as MLPs. These are business partnerships that work like a publicly traded limited partnership. What this means for investors is that they can enjoy the tax benefits of a partnership, and this also means that the profits from Master Limited Partnerships are only taxed once they are received by investors. MLPs also benefit from the liquidity and flexibility that a public company would normally enjoy. MLPs are traded within the United States, and they work to increase cash flow because they are paid out just like dividends.
In order for a company to qualify for MLPs, over 90% of its revenue must come from the processing, transportation, storage, or creation of oil and gas. MLPs have been around since 1981 but were less regulated back then. While they are more regulated today, Matt Badiali has revealed that they continue to offer investors the same benefits as they always have. Today, there are more than 550 companies who are able to offer “Freedom Checks,” and this is a good thing for investors. Payments are made to investors every three months or every month; depending upon the company, and they can be much larger in some cases than a person’s social security payments.
